Kayali Invite Only Amber | 23 Fragrance Review #gifted

Hi, dolls!
I am super excited to share with you that I received my very first PR package from Kayali. As you already know, I am a huge fan of the brand and their fragrances and I am always looking forward to their new releases. I'm so grateful to the entire Kayali team for always being so supportive of my reviews and social media content and I can't believe they were kind enough to gift me their newest fragrance - Invite Only Amber | 23. If you're interested to find out all about the scent, let's get right into the review!


This post may contain gifted items meaning I received these beauty products for free from the brand to try and test out. However, my reviews/opinions on products are always 100% honest and I'll only recommend items that I love!



Invite Only Amber | 23 is a Amber Spicy unisex fragrance. It's described as divinely sensual, decadent and enticing fragrance with an addictive allure. Seduction in a bottle, this bold and irresistible juice envelops Amber Resin and Madagascan Vanilla mixed with Black Cherry, Honey de Provence and Tobacco Leaf to immediately pull you in. Touches of rose and citrus leaf create a soft yet tantalising finish, leaving an incredibly long-lasting, hypnotic sillage behind you.

Top Notes: Sour Cherry, Tobacco Leaf, Honey, Chocolate, Hazelnut
Middle Notes: Ceylon Cinnamon, May Rose, Damask Rose, Citrus Leaf
Bottom Notes: Amber, Oud, Vanilla, Nagarmotha, Benzoin, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Musk

The opening of Invite Only Amber | 23 immediately gives me a burst of Honey, Chocolate, Amber and Cherry and soon after I start to smell a beautiful mix of Cinnamon and Roses. Once it dries down, it has a gorgeous Amber Oudy base. I refuse to believe people can't smell the top notes because I find the Cherry, Chocolate and Amber to be the most prominent notes in this fragrance. It's a warm, sexy and seductive scent - perfect for the fall! Mona and the team couldn't have named it any better - Invite Only is exactly how I would describe the fragrance. It's something you'd wear to be intimate with your person - it will turn people's heads and hypnotise them. 


This is the first Kayali fragrance to actually have Oud as one of its notes contrary to what most people think - many find Elixir  | 11 and Sweet Diamond Pink Pepper | 25 to have an Oud vibe and I totally agree. For me, Invite Only has the perfect amount of Agarwood (Oud) - it's a great start if you'd like to explore the note more and start wearing it.

It is also a unisex fragrance and I can definitely see a guy wear it. In my opinion, this fragrance would also be a great base for layering with more masculine scents for the perfect combo. 


Invite Only Amber | 23 is an Eau De Parfum Intense fragrance containing a super strong concentration of oils. It's crafted with a unique blend of 25% oils that promise a luxuriously rich, long-lasting scent for the ultimate sensorial experience. I stand by this statement as on my skin this fragrance has lasted 9+ hours without reapplying. This has to be the most intense and long-lasting fragrance in the entire Kayali collection!

I also have to talk about the bottle of this fragrance - it looks so elegant and classy. Invite's bottle is gold and reflective, similarly to their previous Utopia Vanilla Coco bottle. Kayali's team gifted me the 50ml bottle which came packed inside the most stunning fragrance case!



Exclusive to Huda Beauty's website, this rose-gold case is for the perfume obsessed that love to travel with their scent wardrobe! Both beautiful and functional, this case holds 3 x 100ml Kayali juices and protects them wherever you go. This case has been a great addition to the PR package I have received from Kayali - I can't wait to take it with me on my next holidays. But until then, it's perfect as a decorative fragrance case for my beauty space!


Final Thoughts
I personally love this fragrance. It's a beautiful gourmand that's not overly sweet. It's mysterious and will help you make a statement anywhere you go. However, this isn't for everyone - I wouldn't recommend blind buying it as gift unless it's for your significant other. As previously mentioned, this scent is unisex and I do see both men and women wear it. It's another unique one and I'm impressed that each of the Kayali fragrances can all be so beautiful yet so different from each other. They are truly the best to layer with! I'm also loving this PR package which not only included the fragrance but also the beautiful rose-gold case. I've already packed all my Kayali's in it and I'm looking forward to future releases from the brand!
